FC70R Straight Round Floor to Ceiling Heated Towel Rail
Heated Towel Rails are an affordable luxury for every bathroom for warming and drying your towels. The FC70R is a great way to make your Heated Towel Rail a design statement in your bathroom.
The FC70R stretches from floor to ceiling featuring 16 bars making it a perfect towel warmer as well. The FC70R features a round profile with a stainless steel finish to complement any bathroom design and finish. The rail is 700mm wide and 3000mm high however it can be cut down to as little as 2400mm on site if required.
The electric towel rail is designed to rapidly heat up and reach a temperature of around 45-55 degrees. The rail can be operated using an on/off switch however we recommend using a timer to allow you to set and forget and control your running costs. As the rail is electric it is very energy efficient and can cost as little as a $2 a week to run.
How do I control my heated towel rail?
Thermorails are safe to be left running continuously however most times it is preferable to have the ability to control when your heated towel rail is on and off and thus saving you energy. The majority of the range of Thermorails don’t have a switch on the unit but can be very simply wired to a standard switch. Alternatively, you can wire the Thermorail to a timer that can be programmed to turn on and off to suit your lifestyle.
Can I wire multiple rails to one timer?
Yes, absolutely, you can connect more than one heated towel rail to a single timer. There are just a few things to consider; You cannot exceed the load rating of the timer (this varies from 1 amp to 16 amps depending on the timer), and all the rails wired to one timer will be on at the same time, they cannot be set on individual schedules. The addition of a timer makes your life simple and rewarding with warm towels everyday and wiring multiple rails to one timer allows you to achieve this result easily and beautifully.
Can I install the heated towel rail myself?
This heated towel is a hard wired unit only so you will require a qualified electrician to install and wire up the Heated Towel rail.
Can my electrician install and hardwire a heated towel rail in existing room without damaging the tiles?
In order to install and hardwire a Heated Towel Rail into an existing bathroom, the first most important consideration is whether your electrician is able to get power from the switch position to where the Heated Towel Rail will be mounted. If power to the mounting position is available, the electrician will need to drill a hole (12-15mm depending on the rail) in the tiles to hardwire the Heated Towel Rails power lead through the wall. For the other three legs, a screw hole into the tiles will be required for the mounts to be secured. Therefore, if the electrician can get power to the position and is able to drill the one hole without damaging the tile, then it is possible to install and hardwire a Heated Towel Rail into an existing room without any damage. Alternatively, the majority of the Thermorail range (excluding 12Volt) have the option to have exposed wiring, meaning they can be easily mounted to your wall and plugged into a nearby power point so that no wiring is required in the wall or roof cavity.
